This is using a MS Windows 2012 Server standard edition. My management has bought W2K12 RDS CAL 5 user licenses, and ask me to setup this server. I heard that you can actually publish some applications so as RDP user can use them. How to do it? How to import the licenses?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jaroslav,

I followed almost all of the steps and now came to the license server activation. Before the RDS user license can be activated, Microsoft request OS license key in order to activate the license server. Your article is great.
